Presented by Round the Mountain Artisan Network, this three-day event will immerse you in a unique gathering that pays homage to the craftsmanship deeply rooted in the Appalachian region.

The conference will allow creatives, businesses, and industry partners to attend sessions on accounting, grant writing, and legal aspects of operating a business, in addition to resources specifically for art businesses and thriving as artists. Attendees will also be able to add on pre-conference training with lessons about how to scale their craft hobby to a business model.

The Southwest Virginia Artisan Conference is sponsored by Virginia Humanities.
